Changing the Information Supplied By The Mass Media Is of Prime Importance

Audio Newspaper "Kabbalah Today"A question I received: Do the mass media and our culture have to change?

My Answer: Definitely. In fact, this is the most important thing. The mass media must serve as a global education system, explaining the essence of the globalization process. This should be their primary responsibility.

All the sources of communication and all the channels supplying people with information should spend 24 hours a day giving people the knowledge of how to organize life under the new conditions. And in truth, this is the only thing people want to hear because everything around them is falling apart and this knowledge gives them the only thing that can save them.

If millions of people begin to think about this, then this thought will be prevalent everywhere. After all, there is no distance for thoughts, so whatever people think about in one place becomes instantly expressed in other places. The power of thought of millions of people is enormous, and it can make everything become revealed at lightning speed. As a result, the correction will happen much faster than the corruption. While the process of the fall of the generations took place over millennia, the correction can happen in just a few months.

Kabbalah explains the process of our development. No one goes through this process by their own will; everyone is forced to participate by the pressure of the circumstances. No one asks our consent to participate in this process, because egoists would never agree to give something up and unite.

However, people will be able to do this because they desire to get rid of their troubles! And they need to know that there is no other solution. The explanation must be based on evidence taken from nature and science and it must cite the opinions of scientists and specialists in the field of economics and finance. Then people will become convinced that there is no choice but to unite in the global world, which is dominated by the “butterfly effect.”

There is no other choice – we will have to do this! What else is left for us to do, if this is what Nature demands? We can either die or live – the choice is ours!

The G-20 Leaders Are Like Children Trying To Build A House

specialTwo questions I received about the upcoming G-20 summit:

Question: Should the G-20 leaders come to some kind of mutual agreement, which will help the world advance?

My Answer: Of course, the situation will push them to some kind of agreement, but what kind? The poor guys have no solution! None of them has anything to say! Obama didn’t even come to the last summit, excusing himself by saying that he has just started his term in office.

No one can offer any solution because no one has a plan! If they had a plan, then something would have been published by now, something would have been done. But, it hasn’t! They cannot do anything under the conditions of globalization because they do not have the “glue” – the force to connect with one another. Even Gordon Brown and other leading economists who understand that it’s necessary to unite, do not know how to do it.

This situation reminds me of children who want to build a house but do not know how to go about this task. They shout, “We want to build a beautiful house where everyone will be happy!” All are gathered on the playground, everyone is excited, but they do not know what to do and therefore they are all left helpless with this problem on their hands.

Question: What do they lack?

My Answer: They lack a connection with the unique Force that can create unification. However, as they gain an understanding of the world’s systems, they will at least realize that they do not have a connection or this Force.

They are literally like children who want to build a house. But what next? How should they build it? This they do not know. They know that a house has walls and a roof, but do not know how to assemble it, as there is no program, plan or strength. In order to solve this task, they need an understanding of the entire structure, but this is something they do not have either. No one envies them and no one would want to be in their shoes now.

We Are All Messengers Sent To This World From The Upper World

woman3A question I received: Several years ago I revealed my predestination: to be a messenger. And there are many people like me – those who are waiting for the Hour of Command, and this Hour is close. I have much knowledge and I am ready to connect, but I don’t want to come out just yet. I found your TV channel, and it seems like the right place to make a heartfelt appeal: I am destined by the absolute kingdom to serve as a messenger of knowledge. It is in my power to change the order of the world. I need your guidance and advice.

My Answer: You are right: we are all messengers who came to this world from the Upper World, sent here in order to rise above the egoism of this world and return home, to the Upper world. As Ostap Bender, the hero from The Twelve Chairs, used to say, “Kabbalah (the international force) will help us!”

The G-20 Leaders Have Much To Fear

life3A question I received: Soon another international summit of “the great twenty” (G20) will take place, where the heads of the most developed countries will be present. And each one of them is hiding a knife in his pocket…

My Answer: I don’t think they are hiding knives. Each of them is challenged with so many problems in their own countries that they have no time for confronting each other. They are afraid of their citizens and of being overthrown. The fear of internal upheaval is much greater than the fear of one’s neighbors. Therefore, this time they are coming to the summit with a different feeling.

Until now, each leader was busy coordinating life in his own country, but today, they are simply afraid for themselves. They literally sense this fear on the animate level, and are asking, “How can I save myself and solve this problem?”

Many countries are already experiencing public unrest, and they cannot do anything to stop it with their police or their armies, since they are dealing with their own citizens. In addition to all the other problems, they are now afraid for themselves and their own lives, and therefore, the participants of the summit are coming there in a completely different state. They are already thinking about how to correct the situation and solve the problem, even if it’s for their own sake.

The True Origin Of Religions

foundationTwo questions I received on how religions emerged from Kabbalah:

Question: Where is the proof that all the religions developed from Kabbalah? Are there any sources confirming this, other than Kabbalistic ones?

My Answer: This is a historical fact – read any of the books comprising the Torah, The Book of Zohar, and so on. Religions emerged 2000 years ago, as a consequence of the Jews’ descent from the level of Kabbalah – the level of bestowal and love. Their fall from that level led to the destruction of the Temple and the emergence of the Jewish religion, which came to replace knowledge, attainment, a perception of the Creator and a connection with Him.

Instead, in religion, people believe in something without actually perceiving the things they believe in. Because of this, other interpretations of the same religion later emerged – since no one sees anything clearly and people just presume things! This is how the other religions came about, although they describe themselves as new religions or new revelations.

However, before all of this began, the Jews perceived the One Governing Force of Nature – the Creator. This is what they described in all their holy books, such as the Mishna, the Talmud, The Book of Zohar, the Tanakh, and others.

Question: In one of your articles, you wrote that after the Jews were exiled from Israel, Christianity, brought there by Greeks and Romans, became dominant in the whole world. You also emphasized that they are not religions. If they are not religions, what are they?

My Answer: I don’t think you understood my article correctly. The three main religions – Judaism, Christinity, and Islam – are, in fact, religions. However, Christianity did not emerge from Romans or Greeks. It emerged in Israel, among the Jews, after the destruction of the Temple, and was later dispersed throughout the world.
